election, access to information, polling places and voting machines. presentation by gil fox from the san francisco department of elections. hi, welcome. >> thank you, good afternoon, everyone, i am here and my colleague will be right upstairs, natalia kasin amount, our deputy director, and we are here today to talk about disability training for election staff, accessibility in voter education and accessibility at polling places. i have prepared a written report which i will -- ken will hand out large print paper copies at the end of your meeting and i will get to him for his sdrib distribution on monday electronically. i also have some other materials here for the public. at the department of elections we strive to help every eligible san franciscoan be a voter on november 6 and that includes people with disabilities. to do that, we started out several months ago -- well, this has been an on-going process as you know better than i do. but we started out several months ago meeting with the disability rights california organization who educated our staff on both respect and etiquette
of their head after the election, and exactly what happened. i love it. we'll have more of this tomorrow. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> eliot: good evening, i'm eliot spitzer, and san francisco, california, and this is "viewpoint." this is a scene we've witnessed before and one we'll watch for four more years after a tumultuous campaign and one long night, the president along with his wife and daughter returned home to the white house this evening. the power of the presidency is making itself felt in other parts of dc where a fear of possible economic collapse is a recurring theme. speaker of the house john boehner seem interested in a compromise with democrats that could keep the country from plunging off the so-called fiscal cliff. while florida is still official officially too close to call even without its 29 collect 29 electoral college votes mr. obama won with a hefty 303 electoral votes but a mere 53% of the popular votes begging the question, was it a mandate or a draw. the president promised to reach out to leaders of both parties. speaker boehner appeared to be re
in business as a political party, and if they want to be successful in getting their people elected they're going to have to change the way they do things, and they're going to have to moderate soften some of their positions. they've got this huge problem with young people and a huge problem with hispanic, with women, with gays and lesbians. you would think they would have to do something but you know, you know, we don't have a crystal ball, and so far they're showing no real sign of wanting to change their ways. >> eliot: sam, you know, the republican party if you look at the exit polls, and you see that they were virtually nowhere with latinos, nowhere with blacks, no one where people under 29, there is a huge gender gap. it's a party of angry white men. that is not a plan of success. doesn't anybody in the republican party get that in terms of raw politics? is there somebody who is saying guys change you're approach to this game. >> lindsey graham said that exact statement a month and a half ago and it will mean absolutely nothing. i think the republican party as a national party is o
-term mayor and now lieutenant governor in san francisco is starting to take shape. tuesday's election was a huge yes to women's rights, gay rights, drug reform and seriously address the issue of climate change. tonight we'll talk about next steps. we can't afford to sit back and celebrate our wins. we have to continue manufacturing forward, leaning forward. with me tonight exploring with me tonight our guests include chris lehans long time clinton aide lawyer and political consultant. and then legendary willie brown and his candid take on key measures. and now we'll get the back story why ad gurus rich silverstein and jeff goodby just don't like politics. we'll start with chris lehans. this is a predictable outcome and in other respects overoverwhelmoverwhelming gains in the u.s. senate, drug policies in states, gay marriage in ways we haven't seen in the past. what is your perspective of what is going on in this country. >> people will look back at this a tipping point of election in our country. what people talk about the demographic turnout and the importance of latino votes and wo
the way through. just amazing to be there on that final night. this was a much different election night than 2008, when 250,000 people greeted this sort of landmark moment. barack obama is more weathered, he's -- >> belva: graying. >> graying, but boy, the -- the democrats there, it was just pandemonium. and i think -- this time, it was tears of relief. instead of joy. that this contest has been so tough, so expensive and so important in so many ways and we saw it so negative that i think people are glad it's over, but to be there and to watch the president give that address and we heard him today in washington talking about what happens now in this country. i think the republicans learned from this election, what we saw in this election, we've seen in california decades before. the ethnic vote, the latino vote, the youth vote, the women's vote. this is -- this has been an electorate that's made a difference, reshaped california politics and we see what's happened here with the republicans now down to 29% of the vote. >> belva: i want to turn to paul, because paul has special powers. yo
as it did. but that's the way it goes. people decide elections. and so my job as an elected official is to move forward after that. i'm not going to spend a lot of time looking in my rearview mirror. it doesn't make sense. it's not productive for the people who have elected me. >> all righty, then. good morning. it's thursday, november 9th. a snowy day on the east coast. you're looking at danbury, connecticut. can you believe this? >> no, i can't. >> november 9th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and analyst john heilemann. and we have a weather story to start with. >> this is the new normal. >> it's unbelievable. >> across the northeast and connecticut last year, we had a hurricane first, and then we had a snowstorm at the end of october. the same thing's happened again. i mean, the fact that people on long island, people on staten island, people across new jersey have no power right now and are having to deal with another nor'easter, this time they're shivering in their homes instea
sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> romney says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you'd have thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with a little chump change. throw them a little something and the votes would come pouring back. here he was yesterday, romney, schmoozing with his donor base about how the whole thing went wrong. it seems the president did a little wholesale purchasing, he said. he bought the minority with health care and bought the students with free student loans. great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours. fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still ha
newly elected president. >> we're getting a clearer picture of how the president won. he lost white voters by 20 points to mr. romney but won the women's vote and among nonwhites had 80% to romney's 20%. romney couldn't believ believe -- romney gave a gracious speech. >> i so wish i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction but the nation chose another leader. >> we have fought our way back. we know in our hearts that for the united states of america the best is yet to come. >> obama won ohio, the critical swing state with 18 electoral votes. the state now voted for the winning presidential candidate in the last 13 elections. and no republican won without the state of ohio. >> the president will face the same divide at congress, democrats will retain control of the senate. republicans lost three key senate seats. two independents generally vote with them. there is now a record high number of women serving in the senate. women hold 19 of the seats. the house is staying in republican hands with 233 republicans and 185 democrats. and nancy pelosi'
term with the election results are causing republicans. to back off from the partisan rhetoric. the mullets rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country in a bipartisan way. >>pam: people living in the oakland hills say crime is no stranger to this neighborhood of police protection is. >> the police told us they just don't have the manpower. >>pam: we are live at a community meeting. with those residents are demanding answers. >> a second arrest has been announced. the destructive vandalism attack that resulted in a muni bus attacked torching that a san francisco muni bus after the giants won the world series. take a look this video, a bystander took this as you can see several people said the bus on fire and smashed out windows. the damage is close to $1 million. police announced a second arrest. police are still looking for other suspects. this is the 19 year-old nicholas hudson he was arrested late wednesday for vandalism, destroying a passenger transit vehicle and olson all are felonies. and and in connection with this the destruction of the sa
's office. why have an elected sheriff? the bottom line was, it didn't work. these sunshine complaints, i voted in the very first election in san francisco in 1999 and they happened to be the latest iteration of the sunshine ordinance. andvy gone back and done the research and seen that you have not taken a single complaint for a hearing except the jewe l gomez and i think that the only reason that you did that was because the civil grand jury pointed it out in their report and you wanted to be able to say no, that is not true, we heard one. you know, it is really auful, and you can be as dismissive as possible, and it is really auful to sit in board and commission meetings and watch citizens denied their right to speak, being told that they are not allowed to speak about certain things. and then, they have to go to the sunshine ordinance task force and fight for those rights under the sunshine ordinance. then to get enforcement, they have to have it referred to you and you simply allow mr. st. croix to dismiss them all. and you wonder why i am a little ticked. i have four things on the 1
one. again at the last meeting -- i think it was last meeting i was elected president and the term expires when jocelyn. >> june 30. >> end of june, so given my personal situation i undoubtedly will be leaving the commission at that time, so what i am going to recommend is that over this course of time that jocelyn -- the meetings i don't come to or leave early at a want to make sure everybody who wants to preside as the director have an opportunity to do so in my absence so you have an opportunity to see what it is like to chair a meeting and the fellow commissioners see how you interact so at the end of june when it's time to elect a new president everybody will have an opportunity to have tried it, see if it's something they want to do, and everybody can do that, so jocelyn will probably be contacting you. normally the vice president would take it but audrey has been around so she knows -- so i just think it's really important to give everybody else on the commission an opportunity to chair the entertainment commission to see if it's something they might like to do, and again t
more involvement, but if they don't participate in the off year elections, the impact of the demographic changes i was going to be pushed a little bit further down the road and it would necessarily need to be. it could be right now or could be two years from now or four years from now. it's always been pushed a little bit further because of the lack of participation in off year elections. >> i don't see any additional hands. >> i'm wondering if you have any thoughts on the flood of money into the campaigns this year and where will the billionaires take your dollars because the super pac impact hasn't been quite what they expected? >> i saw somebody making a snide remark on the website a couple days ago about all the interested in what karl rove tells his donors after the election is over, after collecting all of that money. what is it that we've gotten? clearly there are two aspects of that. first of all, believe me when the final numbers are in, president obama and his sidekick not unilaterally define. so this is not a case where the billionaires -- the billionaires w
in the case. >>> we're back to the election for a few moments. voters torched the parcel tax in contra costa that was measure "q". that means fire stations will be closed. county will also scale back responses to low priority calls. >>> tens of thousands of workers in san jose will soon be getting a pay raise thanks to proposition "d". it passed with 59% of the vote. it will raise the minimum wage in the city to ten dollars from $8. workers have some san jose students to thank for their new pay raise. >> san jose becomes only the second city in the state to set the own minimum wage following the lead of san francisco. this is where it started. we were there in january when a group of sociology students at san jose state university launched the idea of increasing the city's minimum wage from eight to ten dollars an hour. >> it wasn't easy. it was us. we work and play by the rules we should get the fair wage we deserve. that is what people need. >> the silicon valley chamber of commerce fought to defeat measure "d" claiming that it would result in job losses. pizza company has two dozen employ
there. i also wanted to make a couple comments on -- not on the election, but on part of the election process. most notably rank choice voting. >> right. >> i think it's appropriate that i do so because the supervisors in san francisco are extremely important positions. as we know, this is a city and county and it has more impact than probably any other county in state of california because of that fact. and also because in terms of land use issues, they have the ability to alter our decisions and reverse them. and we are dependent upon them for our confirmation, as i found out earlier this year and i knew all along the other three times. and there are some reasons i think that the system may need to be revisited. the whole idea of rank choice voting on three basis. number one, the basis of cost. number two, the basis of increasing the turnout of voters in a runoff election or in lieu of runoff the rank choice thing. and thirdly, this has more to do with district elections making the decisions reflective of the values of the people in the particular districts. in terms of cost, i thin
they have been in decades after tuesday's election. >> is a super majority enabling them to pass tax increases without a single republican vote. republicans held the last super majority back in 1933. all this follows the campaign. that's a record levels of spending here in california. a few wealthy people spent tens of millions of dollars with mixed results. tom cyrus and $32 million in support of proposition 39 which did pass. charles munger spent $29 million on property to which failed. his sister spent $48 million in support of prop 38, which voters also rejected. outside groups spent more than a billion dollars. cbs reporter michelle miller has more on who is behind the so- called super pack. >> reporter: my job is to make sure that i represent your best interest. >> kerry won his election as weak as a freshman congressman from michigan. >> i'm never ever going to raise taxes unless there is a war. >> this former schoolteacher and political newcomer might not have gotten this far without a super pack. liberty for all spent $800,000 to help him win his republican primary. >> god b
the same as before the election. what could be different is a new attitude. president obama and his family returned to the white house tonight. >> hey guys. >> hello mr. president. >> reporter: no doubt hoping for warmer relations with the republican controlled house of representatives. >> mr. president, this is your moment. >> reporter: house speaker john boehner indicated a new willingness to work with the president. >> we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> reporter: but can the speaker make deals with the white house and still satisfy tea party republicans. >> i'm not sure i see that changing over the next few years. >> reporter: usf political analyst, david latterman says republicans are at a cross roads. either continue to stone call -- >> or do they get the message that a lot of people don't want that, and there is room for compromise, and they do come to some accommodation on a couple things. >> reporter: diana feinstein says there's hope. >>

of the legislature, plus the governor. >> we have a lot to break down when it comes to the elections last week. we are also going to be talking with the chairman of the california republican party about the demise of the party here in california. it hit a new milestone last week with a record low number of registered republicans in california. >> and we'll sit down with state senator mark leno and ask him what's the future of prop 13, now the democrats are in control? might get interesting in a minute. >>> we have lots to talk about, but it is a chilly morning around here. even colder than what we saw yesterday morning at this time, parts of the bay area under a frost advisory right now. brian hackney joining us live with what we can expect. i'm hoping a warmup. >> yeah, good morning, anne. thanks for coming by channel 5 this morning. veterans day, a fairly coolish day, but plenty of sunshine. a few clouds out there popping around. aside from that, it is going to be nice, if brisk. there is a frost advisory posted, especially up in the north bay, where temperatures are very chilly this morning. th
it will be different. the results of the election game democrats had super majority. >> becareful what you wish -- be careful what you wish for. that much power could go down the wrong path. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: he says this isn't the time to gloat but to get down to business. helping college students, changing how initiatives make it on to the ballot and repailing the same-sex marriage ban. >> -- repealing the same-sex marriage ban. he says lawmakers will work with governor jerry brown who told us his priorities including high-speed rail, education and a budget. >> the voters have trusted the elected representative, maybe even me and now we have to meet that trust. >> reporter: we found voters who say they have concerns about one party being in control. >> there is not going to be any check and balance. they will be able to enact more taxes and we will have less say in it. >> reporter: she says there are no plans to raise more taxes but opponents say it is their number one concern. reporting live, amber lee, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> three democratic candidates will be receiving c
the house. >> president obama is expected to deliver his first remarks on his agenda since election night. >> everybody is talking about the fiscal cliff. and i would be talking about the fiscal cliff, too, if i knew what the hell it was. >> i can't get through friday with this amount of gas. i'm really stuck. >> parts of new york rationing gas in the wake of superstorm sandy. >> extreme weather, i believe, is here to stay. climate change is a reality. >>> judge sentenced jared lee loughner to life in prison in the massacre that injured gabby giffords. >> gabby said afterwards for her the biggest emotion was just sadness. >> seven navy s.e.a.l.s have been punished for disclosing classified information to the maker of a video game. >> deer crashed through a plate glass window. >> what did you do to make the deer angry? >> maybe our hours weren't suitable. >> all that -- >> touchdown. jacksonville 16 losing streak. >> here comes the headset. o you see anything in porn that tracks you at all? >> no pat. >> speaking to his campaign staffers and got really emotion

and i was running for office. we were in the same election, same ballot and it is easy as it is in san francisco politics to characterize people on either side of the aisle, and milton said "let me find out what this guy is about. let's talk" and that was very fitting because that's exactly how i knew him to operate as a public servant and a person. he wanted to talk about the china town campus and talk about my background. he asked if we should build a campus, and i said it's something that we should do and there was certainly overwhelming support for the campus, but characteristic of his style and his principles he was never afraid to question power, or to question the popular way, and he had many good points, and that was very typical of what i have known him to be as a servant at city college. it was very difficult in his position, often being the one vote out of seven, often finding rubber stamping of a decision, fighting the way we were spending our money for ten years. ten years he was in a position most of the time alone trying to speak up and say why are we doing this?
of white power. >> bill: so now i'm david duke as the far left media runs wild after the re-election of president obama. we'll have a story that will make you furious. >> this country was founded by latin people. >> obama is reelected. >> yes. >> how exeighted are you. >> i would have left the country if he wasn't. >> jesse watters pays a visit to some far left folks. >> i know i'm talking to the enemy right now. >> don't hate me. >> i don't. >> i thought liberals wanted to embrace the other side. >> i don't think that's true at all. >> bill: we will show you what happened in the latest edition of watters world. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the far left running wild. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. flush for president obama's victory last week. far left elements in america are pumping it up. today a number of leftists met with the president at the white house. they included a bunch of union leaders, guy from move on. and center for american progress peop
told me she was able to teach kids kids how elections impacted them. >> i said people decided that they wanted to pay for education. so it will be good for our schools. >> reporter: opponents are disappointed by the results today. a spokesman e-mailed me and said referring to governor jerry brown and his tax measure, he was able to use education to blackmail voters into supporting his tax increase. the voters were duped. but edge cater believe -- educators believe they care about funding public schools. alex savage, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> california state university is set to refund students for tuition increase after voters approved prop 30. the tax boost is expected to bring in $8.5 billion. they will now issue refunds, give credits and reconfigure financial aid packages. >>> a competing measure lost by a wide margin. prop 38 would have increases taxes on earnings using sliding scale, for twelve years. >> we have made a great start with prop 38. we have raised consciousness about a problem that california has which is the underfunding of its children. >> she financed the m
's not a runaway either so it's a confusing case. >>> the election is over, but for the republican party, the second-guessing has just begun. some republicans feel they need to overhaul their party just to stay competitive. nbc bay area's jodi hernandez joins us in walnut creek tonight. jodi, this is a pivotal time. what are some of the options that you know of? >> reporter: that's the big question, raj, where to go from here. i'm standing in front of campaign headquarters for republicans. last week it was bustling with activity and with hope. tonight as you can see all that remains is a few -- are a few discarded lawn signs. analysts say the state gop is in need of a major makeover. >> and after a lot of work there's a big letdown. >> reporter: that's how republican state chair describes how the outcome of last week's election has left republicans feeling. the state's gop suffered a sweeping defeat. not only did mitt romney lose, voters rejected their stance on the proposition and democrats won a super majority in the state assembly. >> the republican party has no good news other that o
--61 million on romney's campaign. but we really saw what wall street thought after the election when the stock market had the worst day of the year. you could see that was definitely election related. you saw investment banks get very hard hit because there will probably be a lot more regulation. you saw that utilities went down and hospitals and insurers would benefit from obamacare and managed health companies go down. wall street said we don't like this. we're seeing a lot of lobbyists come out with more conciliatory language. there is hope there can be a compromise. because in the fiscal cliff comes on january 1. >> i think the cbo was saying 9.1% unemployment and it could be catastrophic and drive us into another recession. look if taxes go up on the wealthy and that has been the president's mantra, could that be a long term drag on the stock market? what does it do to people 401-ks? >> it's definitely less incentive to invest in stocks. not so much as rich people but people at the level tend to be small business owners. they are the ones who hire. that is a huge issue because j
the bay area will get and how long it should last. >>> also, from the election to the fiscal cliff, the president jumping right back into the deep end trying to get a bipartisan deal done before january. we'll tell you where things stand this morning. the news at 11:00 starts now. >>> good morning and thanks for being with us. i'm marla tellez. >> and i'm jon kelley. good morning, everybody. at this hour right now, dark clouds hovering all around the bay area and that rain starting to come down in what's been nothing short of a roller coaster weather this week. started out with record temperatures, then down to some 30 degrees lower and then some rain. >> it's hard to believe it's all in the same week, just two days ago, 92 degrees in gilroy. now talking about 50s and a lot of rain on the way to the bay area. let's get right to that radar and show you where the showers are concentrated right now. in sonoma and marin counties. down in the south bay, we'll have to wait until about 2:00 or 3:00 this afternoon. but we have your time line ready to go. it's not just today that we're goin

here. as that does is saddling we are asking you on facebook now that the election is over what you think are the chances of democrats and republicans working together? feel free to let us know what you think on our facebook fan page. >>pam: their reelected senior feinstein is saying that the biggest challenges is divided congress. once again it is into the control of the democrats and the republicans control the house but they need to work together. >> we must do the people's business we have to find ways to use that word which some are disdainful of. and i see an enormously positive sense and that is the word compromise. that is how you get things done in that is a you solve problems. >>pam: of senator feinstein lever for a full term in office. california voters have 11 propositions. among them was proposition 30 the governor's temporary tax measures. the initiative passed by 700,000. dan kerman has the governor's reaction. >> the election last night was a clear and resounding victory for children, schools and the california dream. >> governor jerry brown took his victory lap appl
surprising that here we are two days after the election, after proposition 30 passed and students are still walking out. what they wants they want to tell the university that they want the money that is coming in from proposition 30 to go to schools. i will show you here that people are starting to gather. this will be unan event that will last for a while. the protest is set to go with the anniversary of occupy cal. you remember this when officers cleared students and others. these scenes vent viral, nationwide. protests here and other campuses didn't get the attention after students were angry after a continuing rise in tuition and fees. one student said the protest is important because they want to see the money come back. >> the money from proposition 30 isn't guaranteed to go to schools. >> reporter: now if 30 hadn't passed legislative analyst said they would have had to cut $250 million from its budget. however there is still a possibility some tuition and fees could go up for certain graduate programs. now so far we have seen some police presence here but not really a lot. its been
